Our Large Samples

Outdoor Samples Exhibition Square

The Square, covering about 2 ha, is actually situated in the yard of the CSCLR, where hold green grassland, tall trees, clean floors, and tidy buildings. The Square serves not only as a unique science popularization park, but also as an after-work entertaining resort for the CSCLR staff and their families. Along the wandering lanes of the Square, visitors can enjoy the 260 large rock and ore samples, which are collected from 125 mines covering China’s 20 odd provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities). The rock and ore samples include: non-ferrous metals, ferrous metals, precious metals, rare metals and non-metallic ores. Each sample has bilingually been labeled in details in Chinese and English. Visitors can learn their mineral names, localities, genetic types, mineral compositions, structures and grades through the explanations. The Out-door Samples Exhibition Square can be served as a base for geological research and science popularization; it can also benefit the professionals and university students as well as the general public in learning China’s mineral resources situations and improving the awareness of resources protection.
